A handful of Republicans objected to the electoral certification for President-elect Joe Biden even after a riot broke out in the Capitol that left five dead and changed the votes of several Republican Senators.
Even before the riot, Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley set off a flurry of bipartisan criticism when he announced he would object to the certification. Hawley cited big-tech platforms’ alleged interference and election laws in Pennsylvania as his reasoning.
Former Democratic presidential candidate and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar called Hawley’s announcement a “coup attempt.”
